ZIV. Making the Smart Grid Real

ZIV is a founding member of the PRIME alliance, the world’s main PRIME meter technology supplier and the only one having developed its own implementation of powerline communication technology.  Our unique mix of knowledge and experience in protection & control, communication and metering  technologies makes us capable to get ready for  the new market challenges by offering  a complete SMART GRID portfolio.

ZIV is since 2012 part of CG. When one tracks down ZIV’s history, three main events should be highlighted:

-        First company introducing a protection and control IEDs and systems to the market.

-        Launching back in the 90s the first high accuracy multifunction class 0.2 compact grid meter; and world’s first smart meters and second generation DCUs based on PLC OFDM technology back in 2009

-        The acquisition of the former DIMAT; a high-tech company leader in broad band PLC telecommunications for electric utilities application.

 

But not everything is about technology, we always bore in mind that our main goal is to help our clients and to contribute to a better society. In our particular case, as a high-tech company, by providing the tools to make the smart grid real for the benefit of both consumers and utilities.

In this story, our clients deserve a central role and our sincere appreciation. Without their support and field experience contribution this could not had been possible. We participated in the STAR Project – the world’s first major smart grid deployment in Bilbao, Spain. Since then we have installed over 3 Million smart meters worldwide and will reach 4 million households by the end of the year.

There are many challenges ahead, but one thing is clear to us. ZIV will continue making the smart grid real by providing solutions born from innovation:
